Macmillan Dementia Support Volunteer
Number of volunteer places available
{places_amount}
Tasks

People who have dementia may experience a wide range of symptoms.  These include memory loss (including not recognising close family members), difficulty communicating, confusion and in some cases, agitation and aggression.  These symptoms usually get gradually worse and may last for years and, in most cases, cannot be treated.



 



The family and carers of people with dementia often find the experience physically exhausting, and often have to deal with complicated feelings and emotions.



 



Dementia support volunteers provide support for people suffering from dementia.  This will include providing support to enable their carer to take time out from their caring role.   Due to the vulnerability of people with dementia, and the confusion many experience, dementia support volunteers will regularly work with the same family for a period of time, to allow them to develop strong and  trusting relationships with the service users.



 



Responsibilities



•           Visit people with dementia in their own homes, and stay with them whilst their carers go out



•           Offer companionship and support to the person with dementia and their carers



•           Arrange appropriate activities for the person with dementia



•           Help with making memory boxes or recording/writing down memories or reminiscences



•           With support and training, provide basic therapies such as Cognitive Stimulation Therapy



•           Identify any immediate difficulties which could be referred on to the appropriate service for help and support



•           Report any worries or problems to the Volunteer Coordinator and/or Volunteer Buddy



•           Complete routine administration records after contact and within set timescales.
